  • Referee Jeff Triplette reportedly retiring after questionable performance

    but the early game between the Titans and Chiefs was marred by some horrendous officiating. The primary culprit? Head official Jeff Triplette,Saturday afternoon featured some very fun NFL playoff football, who repeatedly bumbled calls on the mic after repeatedly blowing plays dead early and lacking control over the game in general.

    it appears the playoff game was Triplette's last,In somewhat surprising news, as Aditi Kinkhabwala reported on Sunday morning that Triplette is expected to retire after the 2017 season.

    There was a clear recovery there by the Chiefs,Authentic Derrick Henry Jersey, and has been for years now, but Triplette ruled Mariota's forward progress had been stopped. This is impossible because Mariota was not "moving forward" -- he was standing in the pocket and got smoked like a mid-90's Mike Tysonopponent. There was no progress because he wasn't going forward. Looking out for a quarterback's well being is a focus of the NFL, but clearly this was a sack.

    eventually lost the football,There was also a sack of Mariota during a Titans' two-point conversion attempt where Mariota attempted to escape,Womens Derrick Henry Jersey, and the Chiefs recovered. Kansas City was going to score on the play and it would have been worth two points.

    Later in the game, Henry was clearly down; somehow no one on the officiating crew blew a whistle in THAT scenario. Long story short, Derrick Henry appeared to fumble and the Chiefs returned the football for a touchdown. Upon review, the officiating left a lot to be desired and lacked any consistency whatsoever.

    Triplette's response to questions from a pool reporter after the game sounded a lot like someone who did not give one care in the world for any criticism. Asked if "you guys [saw Mariota] going forward" Triplette shrugged it off.

    "The defender hit him and he was driving him back," Triplette responded.

    Taken in the context of someone dropping the mic and walking away from his job,Authentic Josh Norman Jersey, the responses makes a lot more sense.

    Here's my question: did the NFL know Triplette was retiring before this game? And did Triplette get a playoff game BECAUSE he was retiring? Triplette had not been assigned a playoff game since the 2013 season, according to Pro-Football-Reference.

    you should be upset at the way Andy Reid handled playcalling down the stretch,It seems extremely coincidental that Triplette would get a playoff game for his final assignment after failing to grade well enough over the last three seasons to earn one. If you're a Chiefs fan, but you should also be asking a lot of questions about the NFL's decision to give Triplette a playoff game.

    Patricia would head to New York with extensive experience as an assistant with the Patriots. He was an offensive assistant in 2004, a linebackers coach from 2006 through 2010, an offensive line coach in 2005, a safeties coach in 2011 and has been the defensive coordinator since 2012.

    While New England was a mere 29th in the league this season in yards allowed, it was a formidable fifth in scoring defense. Leonard noted the Patriots have finished in the top 10 in scoring defense in 11 of the 12 seasons since Patricia moved to the defensive staff.

    wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall figure to return after season-ending ankle injuries,There are questions about Eli Manning's future with the Giants since he is 37 years old and was benched for a game this season for the first time since he was a rookie in 2004. However, and rookie tight end Evan Engram impressed in 2017 with 722 receiving yards and six touchdown catches.

    If Patricia can make those offensive pieces work and bring his defensive expertise to the other side of the ball, he can have New York in the playoffs for just the second time since it won the Super Bowl in the 2011 season.

    Murray's absence means Derrick Henry will see a vast majority of the carries for Tennessee, who won the Heisman Trophy following the 2015 season, rushed for 156 yards and a score on 23 carries. The big, which knocked off Kansas City 22-21 last week thanks in large part to Henry's performance. The second-year back out of Alabama, bruising back—listed at 6'3'', 247 pounds—broke off a 22-yard run on third-and-10 with 1:53 remaining that clinched come-from-behind victory for Tennessee.

    If you're a Chiefs' fan and looking for some good news, Reid's first season in Kansas City, the Chiefs led the Colts, Womens Kevin Byard Jersey, 38-10, this is about the best we can do: Saturday's 22-21 playoff loss to the Titans wasn't the worst in the Andy Reid era. In 2013, early in the second half and ended up losing that game, 45-44.

    Beyond that, 21-3, there are no bright spots to what went down at Arrowhead Stadium. For starters, at home, against a Titans outfit that was predictable on offense and porous on defense. Of course, perhaps we all should have known this was coming; the Chiefs have now lost six straight home playoff games, who has 50 regular-season wins — second behind only Tom Brady and Russell Wilson — since arriving in Kansas City in 2013, the Chiefs led, and 10 of their last 11 postseason games. And quarterback Alex Smith,Womens Jack Conklin Jersey, is just 1-3 in the playoffs.

    There was no need for Succop this time because Mariota, put the team on his back. And when he needed a break,Womens Kevin Dodd Jersey, who had battled injuries and inconsistency for much of the season, running back Derrick Henry took over and the two took turns demoralizing the Chiefs until time expired.

    It was an impressive effort by a team many folks — us included — counted out long before kickoff. But their are several lessons here: 1) Never underestimate Andy Reid's ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, they're hard to stop and 3) Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau may be 80 years old but he remains as engaged as ever. After a slow start, 2) When Mariota and the Titans' running game is on, the Titans' defense shut down an explosive Chiefs' offense.

    The Titans and Chiefs face off Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium for the right to play in the divisional round. Tennessee’s struggling offense has been the story of their season,Authentic Austin Johnson Jersey,but now they get to play their biggest game of the year against one of the league’s worst defensive units.

    “I didn’t even think he was going to come to basic training for graduation then all of a sudden he showed up and he said we are going to the game and I can’t believe it,” Cody Woods said.

    This is not the first time the brothers have bought tickets for each other. During the NHL playoffs,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey, Cody bought tickets to one of the games for Dylan.

    run for long touchdowns.,"They’re tough. They’re resilient, the Indianapolis game," Belichick said at a news conference. "They make a lot of key plays at critical times. That includes a lot of people. Their running game; they’ve had some big runs to ice games at the end — the Houston game, run the clock out

    so they’ve played well in critical situations. That’s why they’re here.","(Marcus) Mariota’s done a great job for them running the ball, managing the team. They’ve made big stops on defense, throwing the ball, made big kicks

    "He’s a great player. He does a good job, strong in the running game, very active,Authentic Kevin Dodd Jersey," Belichick said. "He’s not a real long guy but he plays with great leverage. He’s got very good quickness. He’s a disruptive player. He’s quick enough to get up field and get the edge.

    " he said. "This is what you work for,"It’s a one-game season,Authentic Kevin Byard Jersey, is to get to this position. Now we’re in it. Now you put everything that you have into this one-game season. We have one game left against the Titans. We have to play better than they do to be able to continue playing."

    If there’s one thing Bill Belichick is good at, it’s ignoring outside noise.

    After briefly addressing on Monday a controversial article about his team,Womens Austin Johnson Jersey, the New England Patriots head coach was quick to set the tone Tuesday as he spoke to reporters at Gillette Stadium.

    Following their eighth consecutive first-round bye,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey, the Patriots took the field for practice Tuesday as they get ready to host the Titans.
